De Jonge Wins Individual Title
October 31, 2000

KITTY HAWK, N.C. - Virginia Tech fired a final-round 291 to claim the 21st annual Old Dominion/SeaScape Collegiate Golf Tournament championship. The Hokies finished ten strokes ahead of second-place Furman. Brendon De Jonge (Harare, Zimbabwe) captured the Neil Sullivan Award as the tournament's top golfer, shooting a 137 over the two-day event.

Brian Krusoe (Northfield, Ohio) shot a 72-74 to finish in a tie for tenth place along with Buddy Davis of Furman. Both Ryan Stinnett (Amherst, Va.) and Johnson Wagner fired a two-round total of 147 to end up in a tie for 12th place. Sophomore Chris McKeel (Wilson, N.C.) ended the tournament in a tie for 59th, shooting a 156.

The win marks the second consecutive victory for the Hokies and the third in their six Fall tournaments. Coach Jay Hardwick noted that "the fall season met all of our expectations. We were in contention in every event and that's all you can ask for."

The three wins ties a school mark for the most wins in a season (fall and spring combined) with De Jonge leading the way with two individual tournament titles.

The Hokies next see action in the Matlock Collegiate Classic at the Grasslands Golf Club in Lakeland, Fla., March 5-6.
